Christopher Rivera’s Body Propped Up At Wake Dressed In Boxing Gear

23 year old Christopher Rivera Amaro(5-15) of Puerto Rico was shot and killed less than a week ago and mourners got a big surprise when they showed up at his wake.

Rivera was propped up in the corner of a boxing ring wearing a yellow hoodie, sunglasses and blue boxing gloves as if he was awaiting for a fight to start. Mourners were also standing next to the boxers body and his mother posing for photos.

Rivera had stated to his family that whenever he passes on for his pro boxing career to be referenced  and so the head of the funeral home suggested for Rivera to pose inside a boxing ring.

No arrests have been made in connection with Rivera’s murder.
